If you're looking for a way to show off all your gorgeous fabric scraps, this is the perfect project. Mix and match patterns and prints, or keep things simple with a limited palette. Once you've picked your fabric, things really start to speed up — simple fusing and topstitched wool felt strips add a quilted look (no piecing required!), so even if you're not super confident in your quilting skills, you can definitely pull off this project.

If there's anything we like more than making quilts, it's got to be free quilt patterns. Which is why Angela Walters, host of our uber-popular Midnight Quilt Show series, is our quilting BFF: not only can you download her most popular patterns below (did we mention they're free?!), but you can also stitch along with Angela as she works up each quilt. The only question: Which one will you make first?!

Two-color brioche often grabs the spotlight, but we're big fans of the one-color versions, too. This solid cowl is super simple, and will teach you how to knit brioche in the round (it's pretty similar to one-color brioche knit flat).
